ARTISTS TALK: Magdalena Solé
Please join us for an artist talk with photographer and educator Magdalena Solé in conjunction with her solo exhibition “Cuba Hasta Siempre” on display at VCP through June 26th.
The talk will be held Friday, June 24th at 6pm. It is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
MAGDALENA SOLÉ is an award-winning photographer known for her sensitive expressions of culture through distinctive color artistry. Since 2011 she has been documenting the change that is gripping Cuba, a country that has been mired in the 1950’s. Solé says: “When I arrived in Cuba for the first time, I was transported to the time and place of my childhood in Spain. It was so unexpected.”

The Wall Street Journal called her images “..lushly colorful, formally striking, restless, and electrifying.”
Her photographs have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, La Lettura, Leica Fotografie International, South x Southeast, and on abcNews, among many others. In 2011, Solé was selected as a PDN Photo Annual Finalist for Mississippi Delta, a series featuring the oft-overlooked community of the iconic Delta region, and was awarded the Silver Prize at Slow Exposures, Concord, GA. “New Delta Rising,” a hardcover book featuring published by the University Press of Mississippi, won the Silver Award at PX3 Prix de la Photographie, France. Magdalena Solé speaks seven languages and has resided in New York City since 1984.
